In advance of the new GP contract due to take effect in 2017, which will abolish the Quality Outcomes Framework and build on the process of integration through the creation of GP clusters this seminar will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the challenges facing primary care in Scotland in terms of changing demographics, resource allocation and service delivery. Delegates will discuss the impact of the new payment system on the workload and role of General Practitioners as expert medical generalists.
The conference is bringing together key stakeholders of primary healthcare including representatives of health consumer organisations, trade unions, local government, representatives of healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, academia, interested and affected charities and service user groups, as well as reporters from the trade and national press.
